The name Shadrach is Biblical, and comes from the Book of Daniel. Shadrach, along with Meshach and Abednego was one of the three men of God who were put into a fiery furnace, but who came out unscathed, because the Lord had protected them. They had been put in there by Nebuchadnezzer, the King of Babylon, when they refused to bow to an idol. (Daniel 3:1-29) See more »

I was a bit surprised with the quality of this movie. I was only going to watch it due to Andie MacDowell being on it, but even the kid actors did a fine job. Certainly a drama movie worth watching. If you like drama movies, go rent this one, if only to see Andie in a different kind of role than usually. Nothing romantic about her character ;)
